On August 2nd the Saugeen Shores Police Service launched its latest traffic safety initiative “Operation Slow Your Roll”
This initiative was created in response to social media interactions on the service’s official Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.
Many posters described excessive speeds in the areas in which they lived or frequented. It is recognized by the Saugeen Shores Police that speeding is a problem everywhere.
Officers were assigned to high vehicle and pedestrian traffic throughout the municipality. Many other areas were also targeted by officers.
The program that ended on August 16th saw officers lay 85 speeding tickets, including one for street racing. In the same reporting period for 2018 officers caught 12 speeders.
Members will continue to conduct high visibility enforcement.
The reduction of vehicular speeds is proven to save lives.
